Kees van den Berg has booked a flight for the saturday and will return on sunday. So, Steve, I can confirm that Kees will come.
I've still got some questions for you Steve, does Kees have to pay for the hotel night?And I assume he has to pay you 20 pounds right? If so, then he will give you the 20 pounds on saturday.

And shit, I've called KLM today and asked why I haven't received my tickets yet. They said they haven't received money yet, although I transferred the money 1 week ago and it's not on my bank account anymore. So, I've told the bank to send them a fax the payment has been made. I hope everything will be fine....

I'm afraid you have to count George Koumoutsos out because he can't afford the trip...

I will have paid for Kees hotel room for friday night so no worry there he would only have to pay the 20 quid. I'm glad to hear he can make it too. Good stuff. Shame about George though <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif">

Yes, our tickets have arrived, so expect us to arrive in London on friday at 13.30, we'll return on sunday at 18.15
This means we probably have to leave the hotel on sunday at about 15.00

Not wishing to make my usual contentious suggestion BUT -

I think the planned second group phase will take too long. We need to spend Day One on the first group phase. Then, anyone knocked out in Day One can go home if they wish. Day Two should be a shorter day, and perhaps it should change to knockout straight away. This way we can finish faster. I can see use still playing the second group phase mid-afteroon - this doesn't give us enough time for the quarter and semi finals before people must leave.

People knocked out in round one (half our players) don't want to sit on the sidelines while the other half plays round two. They want to see a quick conclusion to the tournament, then either go home or play UKO or friendlies. For phase two we should have a seeded knock out (like Wimbledon) based on placements in the first group phase.

Group stage 2 will only take an hour an a half to play and then we are into the knockouts ....an hour later we will at least be to the semis and an hour later we will have a champion...not stretching it too much is it!!!! We'll be done by 1ish at the latest. Remember we have 4 amigas on the go at any one time. we start with 32 competitors on day 1. Day 2 see's us with only 16 left and after the next group stage we'll only have 8 left. 1 knockout round later and we'll have our semi finalists etc . It really isn't that taxing at all.
